Clean Out Houston Commercial HVAC Systems Every 3 to 5 Years
Ideally, you should have your system thoroughly inspected, cleaned, and maintained every three to five years to reduce the risk of malfunctions. Neglecting regular maintenance could result in increased energy bills, breakdowns, and reduced lifespan of your HVAC system.
This is particularly important during summer weather in Houston when the climate can get scorching hot, causing your unit to work even harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. The summer of 2023 has been incredibly intense, with temperatures frequently soaring into the hundreds. Records were shattered as the city witnessed over 50 days with the mercury climbing above the 100-degree mark, underscoring the pressing need for efficient and effective HVAC systems.
Identifying Signs of a Dirty or Malfunctioning HVAC System
There are some common warning signs that your HVAC system isn’t working properly and may quit working altogether. Look for:
- Air returns and vents that are noticeably clogged with dirt, dust, or debris.
- Lower-than-normal airflow out of vents.
- Airflow temperature doesn’t cool significantly even when the thermostat is set low.
- Increased incidents of respiratory irritation or heightened allergies amongst building occupants.
These symptoms could be a result of a Houston commercial HVAC system that needs some attention. Don’t waste any time in seeking out professional help to ensure the air quality in your space is healthy and pollution-free.
Invest in Professional Service to Ensure Quality Performance from Your HVAC System
Investing in professional cleaning and maintenance services for your HVAC system can truly pay off in the long run. A thorough clean-out every 3 to 5 years is essential to ensure quality performance and better energy efficiency from your system.
This type of clean-out can involve multiple steps, such as inspecting and cleaning the supply and return ductwork, dedicated exhaust ductwork and fans, and the air handler units. For internally lined ductwork, cleaning and re-sealing may also be necessary. Technicians will also inspect the VAV’s reheat coils and mixing boxes, and replace filters as needed.
Additionally, if mold is found to be present, remediation may be required for all ductwork to reduce the presence of dangerous mold spores in the air.
